In preparation for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – the final installment in the most successful film franchise of all time – Warner Bros. has released seven new promo images. Most of the images give us a good look at some of the new characters that will be joining the series before it takes its final bow next summer.

I’ve been a fan of the Harry Potter film franchise so far and I’m very much looking forward to seeing the conclusion of this epic story. I’ve only read the first two Potter books and am in the dark as to how it all ends, so I can enjoy the ride on the big-screen. And from the looks of all the promo stuff it’s going to be one hell of a ride.

We recently got a couple of insights into Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows via info of where the last film will be split, as well as an early fan review of Part 1. But if you’re after less spoilerish promo stuff, then check out these latest images which focus on specific characters:

Characters in order (left right, left right): Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe), Rufus Scrimgeour (Bill Nighy), Albert Runcorn (David O’Hara), Gregorovitch (Rade Šerbedžija), Bathilda Bagshot (Hazel Douglas), and Xenophilius Lovegood (played by Rhys Ifans).

With the exception of the third movie, Prisoner of Azkaban (a standalone great), each of the Harry Potter flicks have improved on the previous ones. The last one, Half-Blood Prince, was probably the technical best of the installments so far as it presented the most mature and rewarding film of the series up until this point (not to mention having the most jaw-dropping special effects).

I have a feeling with Deathly Hallows Part 1 & 2 the story will go out with a bang, specifically as we get to witness the much awaited final face-off between Harry and Lord Voldemort (whoops, I forgot we are not supposed to say his name).

Be prepared for these last two Potter movies to make some serious cash at the box office. This November, Part 1 kicks off the final stage of the franchise, but I’m predicting Part 2 next July will break some serious records. At this point it’s pretty inevitable, right?

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 hits theaters on November 19th, 2010. Part 2 follows next summer on July 15th, 2011.
